    Judging people

    I find myself judging a player is by their screen shots (like when they want a price check and post an image instead of just typing the stats). What items it looks like they're using and how their inventory is laid out compared to mine. Anyone else do this?

    Re: Judging people

    I tend to judge people in games sometimes too. I judge that the person I recently met that thought it was okay to play a Red Half Dragon Paladin of Bahamut is an idiot. I also couldn't be arsed playing with people that make Drizzt Do'urden wannabe characters.

    There's so many idiots on the internet, you might as well weed out the ones who use words like "u" right away.

    I blame AOL and their chat rooms for the people who don't type actual words.

    Tanooki, I find your avatar very fitting.

    I definitely judge people by how they type. If are making a request and can't take the time to phrase it properly, I figure they might not take the time to read my response. So I don't bother giving one.

    Of course you judge people on the internet :grin:
    Especially in games, and not just by how they type.
    Like when I play wc3, whenever I get matched against a Night elf, I just assume they are lame, abusing noobs and quit :rolleyes:

    I blame the actual people who use that kind of typing.

    Yup. Though I didn't go to college there - if you were going to judge me ;)

    I don't judge people because Prot's not good at PVP.

    Re: Judging people

    I judge people based on: Everything really. They way they type their posts. The way they use English. The way they speak. The way they act in games. The way they act in real life. The way they look.

    I am a real *judge*....

    Everything is questionable over the internet, be it forums, chat rooms, or games. Believe nothing unless you are acquainted with it in real life. Judge, based on possibly erroneous data, at your own risk.

    Can't really judge people in the internets, but I can still call them retards and flame away.

    Shut up, you. There's a difference between typos and saying

    Re: Judging people

    The topic's idea should be more accurately phrased cause the word "judge" has quite a heavy load of context coming along. All stimuli have obviously an impact. Being judgmental is another thing altogether.
    For me, it mostly depends on the mood i 'm in. But i do hate people that can't use the space of an inventory or refrigerator correctly and i wish they get clubbed in the face with a sledgehammer.

    I never rush a "can you rush" request.
    I just tell them yes, I Can...
    If they type "Will You rush" I might.
